    So in other words you have no evidence that they heard God tell them anything, or more importantly, you have no evidence to support your accusation that the Speaker bribed people to keep his post. With all the spying the democrats are doing, you would think a little proof of bribery wouldn't be so hard to come by, especially since there is no love lost between the Speaker and the fertility god.

    Conservative Reps Say God Told Them To Spare Boehner From Coup

    Sounds awfully familiar. When Gingrich was facing a coup, boehner, Scarborough, and Dick Army were among those who were planning it. Army recanted his move against Gingrich after supposedly consulting God through prayer. Scarborough thought it was a cowardly move .

    It's not. It's just a means of either:

    Weighing moral or ethical issues

    A means of providing socially accepted outs when it was largely or entirely a political calculation.

    You can't make this stuff up. I wonder if God uses Twitter now?

    Scarborough thought God was cowardly?

    Good joke, but just in case it's not, he meant Army's public declaration.

    Re: Conservative Reps Say God Told Them To Spare Boehner From Coup

    The title of the story and what these reps said are two different things.....from the op's link-

    He read the story of Saul and David, as the king of Israel tried to kill the future king. David wins and, with a chance to kill the king, decides to spare Saul.

    Southerland woke up convinced that Boehner should be spared. Others, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said they, too, prayed before siding with Boehner.
    Doesn't say God spoke to them, merely says they read the bible and slept on it lol
